“For the glory of God, the Salvation of souls and the good of the holy Catholic church”

Dear Friends in Christ,

Praised be Jesus Christ!  I pray and hope that all is well with you and your loved ones. 

I, Sister Maria Francis B. Herrera, representing the community of the Sisters of Our Lady Queen of Peace (SOLQP), greet you with the peace of Christ!

I am praying and hoping that we can soon begin the work of God through the SOLQP community.  Incidentally, the desire to establish this new community was placed on my heart by the Holy Spirit back in the latter part of 2013.  As of this moment, we are in the beginning stages of planning and organizing the community and, as such, we are seeking your kind assistance, both financially and spiritually.  In order to proceed further, our next order of business is to source out and subsequently acquire a property for our convent which will house our Sisters.

We hope to ultimately find our home in the geographical area north of the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  Now more than ever, there is a great need for the people of Canada to cease offending God and to instead come to Him seeking forgiveness and love.  Once we purchase a property and get settled, our community will embrace God’s love and make reparation for all of our offences with Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

Our community of Sisters will follow the Rule of St. Benedict and we will spend time daily being devoted to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as well as praying the Divine Liturgy of the Hours, the Holy Rosary, the Divine Mercy Chaplet and the Stations of the Cross just to name a few.  Our goal is to be able to offer an invitation to women who are contemplating the Religious life and who would like to consider joining our new community. 

In addition, we will focus much attention on teaching the Catechism of the Catholic Church to children, adults, families as well as single individuals.  We plan to offer this teaching in small and large group settings.  This is so important in our world today as many Catholics today, most through no fault of their own, have not been catechised.  We need to know our faith!  Many, many of us have sadly been deprived of being taught our faith.  However, it’s never too late!

Besides teaching, another mission of our apostolate will be that of palliative care for those who are suffering and who are in need of relief for their suffering.  We will focus on their physical as well as their spiritual needs during this critical time in their lives.  We will be the hands and feet of Christ in these people’s time of need.

As a community of Religious women who will be dedicated to following God’s Holy Will each and every day and serving God’s people, we will depend wholly on the help of God’s grace.  We, the Sisters of Our Lady Queen of Peace, desire to provide God’s people with His peace, His love, His mercy, His compassion and His consolation … all through our many daily works and prayers.

We humbly ask you in charity to please consider assisting us financially … as you are able to do so … so that we may acquire a property for our Convent.  Any amount … small, medium or large … would be greatly and gratefully accepted and appreciated.  It all goes towards God’s work and God’s plan.  As well, your prayers for the success of this endeavour would also be very much appreciated.  We will keep all of you, our supporters, in our prayers too.

Thank you so much and may God bless you in abundance.

Sincerely yours,

Sister Maria Francis B. Herrera
